    I don't agree that they are "the same" - certainly they are not on gay marriage, foreign policy etc,

    but American politics are in gridlock, because both parties need votes from the centre to rule. So both parties have to issue policies that appeal to the centre, and that means that they issue the same policies.

    They're not the same. I get the republicrat thing and yes they're both bland, cliche loving politicians, but I think they have different viewpoints.

    Really? Did you watch the video? you seem to be in denial...? other than mitt's plan to cut taxes even more on the wealthiest and raise them on the rest of us....they seem to have the same stances on issues such as health insurance for all, gun back ground checks to prevent the mentally ill from owning guns, Bernanke doing a good job, TARP being a necessity, the Obama stimulus being a necessity, the auto bail out being a good thing etc etc etc....

    Sounds like Romney is President Obama's biggest supporter!:clap2:

    Really, so he supports Obamacare? he's pro abortion? he's pro gay marriage? he's for higher taxes?
    Look he ran in Mass, he had a democratic legislature so I'll give him a break, if he pulls that shit at a national level then he'll be one and done.

    Just to let you know, I support Scott Brown in Mass, I dont agree with all of his policies, but it's fucking MAssachusettes, they're brain dead and vote for democrats reflexively and so I'll get the best deal I can. SAme with the President, I'm not a huge Romney fan, but he's better than Obama

    btw, having two parties which closely resemble each other is inevitable in a two-party state.

    Until the US embraces multi-party democracy, it will remain in political gridlock.

    Look I hate the 2 party system, but it's the best one. a multiparty state sucks beyond belief. anything is better than a single party state, but multi party is Continental Europe and no I dont want that at all.

    yes, he was basically pro choice....before he was against it. Yes he was for obama care, even said he was flattered that Obama was using his plan....before he was against it, yes he supported civil unions with all benefits for the same sex couples being equal to any married couple.....before he was against it....

    What this election (and all elections I would venture to guess), boils down to is more on who we all feel more 'comfortable' having as president.....Democrats with a Democratic president and Republicans with a Republican president....even if both candidates have the same stances.
